comments, chris, he talked about the need for meaningful action, saying it is necessary regardless of the politics. he didn't go into details today. i expect during the coming days and weeks, we will learn a little bit more about what he meant specifically about meaningful action. the last time he talked about gun control and this type of issue were in the days after that horrible shooting in aurora, colorado. the president delivering a speech to the urban league. i'm going to read you a little portion of that speech because it fleshes out what was behind his words today. the president saying he believes in the second amendment. but, quote, i also believe that a lot of gun owners would agree that a.k. 47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not in the hands of criminals. that they belong on the battlefield of war. i believe the majority of gun owners would believe that we should do everything possible. that a mentally unbalanced individual should not be able to get his hands on a gun so easily. so those are some of the policy issues, i think, that are behind those words that he made t

own. we have to come together, and we're going to have to take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this from happening regardless of politics. >> in that aurora theater last july a gunman wielding a semi-automatic rifle with a 100-barrel magazine, a shotgun and pistol went on a rampage killing 12 and wounding 58. shortly afterwards colorado's governor said stricter gun laws would not have helped. >> if there were no assault weapons available, if there were no this or that, this guy is going to find something and know how to create a bomb. >> he seemed different in an interview last wednesday, two full days before the events here in connecticut. when you look at what happened in aurora, the governor said, a great deal of that damage was from the large magazine on the ar-15 rifle. i think we need to have that discussion and say, where is this appropriate? joining any now is the governor of colorado, john hickenlooper. thank you for joining us today. i think that things are so fresh here in connecticut, but you have been dealing for several months with the aftermath of
in real life. the chance to stop the action and to discuss what's going on. >> what did you guys just see happen? yeah. >> the play is called "alice's story," and the actors perform it at different schools. it shows that bullying can happen even among friends. >> "alice's story" examines a friendship between two young girls, and how sometimes the people who you feel are closest to you can take advantage of you. >> you put that on facebook? >> yeah. and people were writing that they thought it was true. >> we wanted to give students an opportunity to put themselves in the roles of the characters and practice making decisions in case they ever found themself in a similar situation. >> and then, together, we found ways to see how the person that was being bullied could have changed what they did. and we worked together to solve the problem. >> what was working super-well about what caitlin did? >> when caitlin said that if you would like it if you did that to her, and she kind of showed her feelings -- that she said that she wouldn't like that that much. >> the actors help the students see t
and a call to action. >> we have to come together and we'll have to take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this from happening, regardless of politics. >> president obama did not provide specifics but in the past, the president has supported reinstating a federal assault weapons ban. >>> the medical examiner said he's never had to deal with something like this. >> my sensibilities may not be the average man, but this probably is the worst i have seen. >> dr. carver went on to say that all of the victims had been shot multiple times with a long weapon, presumably the semiautomatic rifle found at the scene. >> people all over the world are expressing sympathy for the victims in the massacre. in moscow, people left flowers and stuffed animals outside the american embassy. the prime minister formally sent condolences and said russia's thoughts are with the victims' loved ones. >> in rio de janeiro set a memorial. >> british prime minister offered condolences to the parents, saying, quote: it's heartbreaking to think of those who had their children robbed of them at such a young
called for, quote, a meaningful action to prevent similar tragedy dpips didn't spell out, though, what should be done. i asked the connecticut senator, richard bloomenthal earlier today, what he expects to happen. >> we're going to go back to washington, the united states, new federal legislation needed to tighten up gun control in the united states? >> you know, wolf, that is a conversation i am going to have with my colleagues. today i'm not going to discuss it out of respect to the families. and i'm going to be back again tomorrow. but i'm going to go to washington and i'm going to raise this issue, and i think it's time for the conversation to be renewed. for the dialogue to begin again, and for the senate to consider whether that is necessary. >> let's bring in our white house correspondent briann brianna keilar. what do you see? >> president obama will be headed to newtown to speak at an interfaith vigil. he will be offering his condolences, no doubt striking a tone of uniyuan but not talking about what he sees as the solutions to avert something like this. the white house feels
and take into actions that she did, that shooter had the capability of killing much more in this tragedy would have been far worse if it wasn't for her heroic actions, so, i think that that loss certainly is extremely heart felt and we're saddened, but in the other instance, it gives me great pleasure to know that she did what she was supposed to do and when we talk about these types of things, in our wildest dreams did we ever think that the conversation that her and i actually had would unfold into reality and then causing the loss of her life. she's truly a hero today. >> dave: we mention you're the first selectmen in woodbury and how is your community coming together around this tragedy? >> the first thing when this was unfolding was sheer shock and then it was horror and then it goes into heart break and as a community, we're coming together and we're all talking, we're grieving and trying to make some sense of the senseless and we're strong, we're a small community and we'll come together and get through this. >> dave: is there anything you need? i think so many people ask us what
the gunman with her own body, actions that many at the school are calling heroic. >> i didn't know her at all. but i don't know -- it could have been my kid. > shannon: those who knew victoria say her life-saving actions were not surprising. that she put her children 50 and want to do her best for hem. this brings back painful memories of a student on a rampage in virginia tech, shooting and killing 32 people, wounding 17 others and then killing himself. former homeland security tom ridge was on the panel investigating the massacre and the universityee response to it and former governor, thank you for joining us. >> sad to join you under these circumstance, but it's an important conversation and the entire country has to have this conversation. it's about time. > shannon: there are so many portions of the conversation to have. we talked about the fact tain a number of shootings issue there are so many common factors with those who carried out the crimes, maybe that's a good place to start. >>ic it is. if you look at horrific incidents and you pull back and take a look at the profile of the ac
. >> the violent actions are either in the minority or not. you basically all said that they are. therefore, it is the exception. when someone loses a political fight they protest. that is great thing about democracy. throwing into solyndra in there. here is where you are wrong. let me explain. >> this is the sin of obama economics it was supposed to go to shovel-ready jobs and men and women would partake in. it was handed to states so they could keep their pension funds flush and finance things like solyndra. even the president joked about there was no shovel-ready jobs. the labor movement should be mad at the president, not at republicans and not at fox news. >> neil: they did help push them over the finish line. >> but back to politics, i agree that is the political process we're seeing here. >> neil: i have no idea where we ended up but that is fine. just a dime for the holiday. one airline is giving flyers the gift of new speed. girl: don't look at me. second girl: your hair's a bit frizzy today. aw! ha ha! you should pick that up. announcer: every day, kids witness bullying. poor you.

in days and weeks ahead he believes action needs to be taken. he was pressed on some of these sunday shows. mayor michael bloomberg saying now is the time to act and not a vague promise, he needs to follow-up on gun control. there are others wait a second, don't try to capitalize with some sort of legislation that may not be the right prescription. there will be a big debate but i'm told the president will not talk about that instead talking about prayer and remembrance. on friday he said he and first lady would hug their own children a little tighter this weekend. before the president is heading to connecticut just a short time ago he was at his daughter's dance rehearsal that is coming up. he is thinking about all of this as a parent and not just as a president. >> as we were speaking, he is in fact on the way there. we are looking at live pictures the andrews air force base. i wanted to get back to our discussion, you said that you don't anticipate the president to address the issue of gun control i would imagine, you are there on the ground, i would imagine at this point the parents th
the heroic actions that she took in her classroom when the gunman burst through the door, how she rushed the kids into a closet to try and save them and then of course the gunman took her life. as we were out here tonight with her sisters and her brother, her cousins and all of her friends, and doing what they can to remember her, i spoke to one young woman, a friend of soto's for many, many years. just listen to how she struggled to talk about how she will remember her. >> she was always at the house smiling. she drove us to cheerleading practices a couple of times. i'm also a teacher and i can't even imagine going through what she went through. i think her putting herself out there -- she's just an angel and she just went straight into heaven. there's no doubt about that. >> don, the reason why soto's family decided to hold this vigil tonight, the reason why they showed up and gave us pictures, pictures by the way that soto's mother picked out because they were her favorite pictures. the reason why they did all this is because they did not want soto to be remembered as just a victim. t
on the streets, in the churches, are saying to me, we need to do something. it is a call to action. >> and do you feel that same call to action? because we've had a lot of these. i mean there was a young girl that died in tucson in the gabby giffords shooting, a lot of people that died, but a 9-year-old i think that died in that. we had a baby killed in the aurora theater. and this is sort of horrific beyond imagination because there's so many young people. we've heard this before. and there is -- you know, there are people saying wait a minute, can we not do anything just as a knee-jerk reaction, we need to think this through. >> the tipping point on these issues whether it's taking on assault weapons or providing more comprehensive mental health or addressing the sort of culture of violence that prompts somebody to do something like this, the tipping point should have happened a long time ago. if this is the tipping point, then we're going to go down to washington and prompt a conversation that's long overdue. you know, a young man grabbed us in his church we were in sobbing saying, don't let t
from her cousin. "she instinctively went into action when a monster came into the classroom and tried to protect the kids she loved so much. we want the public to know that vicki was a hero." two other people from the school, you need to hear their stories. dawn hochsprung, the principal, 47 years of age. she'd been at the school for two years. when you talk to people who knew her, a friend said she's passionate. she always had a smile on her face. she was just that kind of educator you wanted in charge of your students. kids loved her. the friend that went on to say she was a tough woman but in the right sense tough. as i mentioned, she was a newer principal, and one of her priorities, which she, in fact, followed through on, was installing this new security system at this elementary school at sandy hook elementary school so that, if there were to be a stranger or visitor to come to the school after the school doors closed at 9:30 in the morning, they would have to ring the bell. security very important for dawn hochsprung. friday morning, she was in a meeting, according to a parent,
that speedy action by first responders may have very well prevented an even worse tragedy. take a listen. >> we surmise that it was during the second classroom episode that he heard responders coming and apparently at that decideded to take his own life. >> what else, michelle can you tell us about those final moments before adam lanza decided to kill himself? >> reporter: well, those are certainly the detailsa we're hoping that we'll learn about, perhaps at this press conference or in the coming days, exactly the length that adam lansa had to this school, in fact what happened, perhaps they'll have a little bit better timeline. when first responders and law enforcement arrived on scene, they arrived to a very active shooter situation, a very chaotic situation and of course what was left behind is just devastating in terms of what they had to cope and deal with in terms of not just the emotions of this, but also processing that crime scene. so that they're say whether take the most time. >> the stories of heroism that happened inside sandy hook elementary school. the teacher who for all
on to online actions and stuff, but for parents with kids, changing policies at schools can be an accessible thing, joining pta's or talking to the school board about having integrated pest management so kids aren't exposed to pesticides on playgrounds, that's been successful. there's a huge movement to get safer, healthier foods into schools and they just revised the school lunch guidelines, but also you could go organic, you could go local and there are schools in berkeley and in the bay area really making some amazing strides and ensuring safer food practices, universities could do the same thing and that would be huge because that's such a large population as well. cleaning products in the schools, don't we want particularly these little kids who are more vulnerable to be less exposed to the kinds of cleaning product chemicals that might not be on the labels of those products being used, so schools can be a really targeted place and an accessible place for people to see change happen. there's a network there, hopefully you have like-minded parents to work with around the community as wel
